Hello, I bought this program, mostly to have the taskbar at top, it is very organised and neat that way. All is from top down then:
Taskbar (tabs as groups of windows) -> Groupy (tabs as individual windows) -> tabs as subset of each window (for example in web and file browser).
Unfortunately, when I restart explorer to activate this function, the explorer loads the taksbar at bottom as default first, and then it is removed but not entirely. There is void space instead, of which various programs are not always aware of. I did get a few programs to utilise this space a few times. But it is not permanent :/.
(I really like the taskbar seconds feature, btw).
(Additionally, the customized search functionality only works when running Stardock's Start11 start menu. Not sure if this is how it's supposed to work. I use Windows 11 with all latest available updates. But I mostly care about the taskbar position for now).
Could this also be a conflict with Groupy somehow? I'd never want to not use Groupy. Seriously, it's one of the best things I bought. (Also I'm on trial of Fences4 and CursorFX and I'm so impressed with each).

Steps to reproduce: Select Taskbar position as at top and restart explorer.
Regards. (I copied my issue to here, as I have just stumbled upon this relevant thread).
EDIT: I found a workaround! It all works 100% fine with every program, even after logging out.
Steps I did to work around:
Edit registry according to this https://pureinfotech.com/move-taskbar-top-side-windows-11/
BUT don't restart explorer until Start11 has the taskbar position set to top. (Many thanks to the people involved in that article).
We can't rely on microsoft to not do more breaking changes. This needs to be fixed, so that even non tech savvy people can use this properly.

EDIT 2: Seconds don't work (are not being shown) at all sometimes with the top position after this procedure. I restarted explorer again and they started working after some delay. Quite strange. But after retoggling that option in Start11 and logging out it keeps working for now even after reboot.
